Book Review: "Deep Extraction"

Deep Extraction by DiAnn Mills is the second book in her FBI Task Force series, though it really stands alone. In this book, Special Agent Tori Templeton is brought on the case to solve the murder of her best friend’s husband. Her partner, convinced of her friend’s guilt, questions her ability to work the case without bias. But a new member to the task force, Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers, turns out to be an unexpected ally. Together they must solve the murder and also learn who set off a bomb at one of the victim’s oil rig sites. All becomes quite confusing and intense for the team as suspects and dangers multiply faster than answers to questions come in.

Overall, I enjoyed reading the book, but I didn’t always find the characters’ personalities or motivations to be believable. Max was over-the-top cantankerous. Lance seemed much older than the age given him. I wasn’t sure if Tori’s mother was an encourager or a problem to be dealt with. Sally didn’t seem like someone capable of the task given her near the end. Stronger personality development would have greatly enhanced this story.

Still the crimes and their surprising connections as all began to unfold kept the book interesting. Fans of law enforcement stories will enjoy Deep Extraction. I thank Tyndale House Publishers for sending me a complimentary copy in exchange for this review.
